$3.1 Million In Back Pay Ordered In Race Discrimination Suit - Kentucky Discrimination Lawyer
$3.1 million in back pay has been ordered by a federal judge in a race discrimination suit. A judge found based on the evidence that the company discriminated against black workers in promotions and assignments. The effect of this discrimination was to produce a pattern extending across many years in African-American shortfalls in promotions. The employer, Lufkin Industries, was also ordered to stop channeling new black employees into the worst and least desirable assignments.
